Meet an “AMAZING!” whose spirit is truly undaunted!

EILEEN ASH, a superfit 105, attends regular yoga classes, bowls, tends her garden, drives her snazzy yellow Mini, and reads without glasses. All this, having finally given up her golf clubs at 98.

Eileen’s all time favorite sport is cricket, which she was introduced to at the tender age of 5. She loved it so much as a child, that she took her cricket bat to bed with her! She played in the England Ladies’ Team for many years, after which she worked as a spy for M16.

Her attitude on getting older is invigorating; “I don’t understand people who just give in [to age],” she says, “I think everybody can do something. There’s no such word as ‘can’t’. You can always try.” Indeed!

AMBROSE LEVAN, 105, plays the organ with undiminished enthusiasm and the same determination that allowed him to go from working as a simple draftsman to vice-president of an engineering firm. He swims to keep fit, and enjoys his family, although he misses his wife of 67 years, who passed in 2003. He says that age gives you a sense of perspective and an appreciation for what you have in your life. Appreciation makes it all matter so much more!

Nanda Fischer, age 77, started playing tennis at 27, and is still going strong 50 years later. In addition to many previous spectacular wins, most recently, she was ranked number 1 in 2016 with the International Tennis Federation in both singles and doubles in the 75 and over category. This, despite the fact that she is left-handed, competing in tournaments with primarily right-handers.

Meet an “AMAZING!” whose spirit soars as he flies the Midwest skies!

ERNIE SMITH, now 99, became at 98 years young the oldest active pilot in the world, according to the Guiness Book of Records. He continues to fly solo regularly, never having had any problems with his every-2-year medical exam and renewal flight requirements. Ernie fell in love with flying as a farm boy, watching the planes soar high overhead, and spent every $2 he could save on 15 minute flying lessons ($8 for an hour) until he got his license in 1946. Since then, he’s flown up to Canada and all over the Midwest, piloting Cubs to Bonanzas and everything in between. He’s known to be an excellent pilot, making “textbook landings.” Asked how long he intends to keep flying, he answered, “As long as I live!”

Meet an “AMAZING!” whose passion for horses keeps her riding high in life!

DINNIE GREENWAY, 96, has been riding horses since before she could walk, and apparently before she was born, as her mother rode sidesaddle while pregnant with her. To this day, she gallops and canters across the fields, her love of horses being an addiction she would never want to do without. Has she suffered falls and injuries? Oh yes, among which a broken neck – twice – yet that has never diminished her desire to literally get right back on a horse. Although she’s traveled the world in competitions (into her 80’s!) and won horse-rider fame along the way, what matters to her isn’t that, it’s always and forever, her love of horses.

Meet an “AMAZING!” who is the very personification of compassion!

The 14th Dalai Lama, TENZIN GYATSO, 81, is without doubt, one of the most vocal proponents of Happiness anywhere on our planet! Unbelievably active, he travels the globe, speaking and writing about Joy, the meaningful life, happiness, the value of meditation, as well as such relevant political and social topics as the environment, women's rights, non-violence, interfaith dialogue, physics, astronomy, Buddhism and science, and more.
A true source of inspiration for us all!

Meet an “AMAZING!” wowing them on the keyboard!

ALICE DONAHUE, 84, better known as “Granny” of “Granny and the Boys,” the name of her band that performs live funk fusion every Sunday night at the Showtime bar - four middle-aged men on bass, guitar, drums and vocals, with Alice on keys. She started managing her partner, Richard’s, band some 20 years ago, and shortly thereafter, the keyboard player up and disappeared right before a live performance: would Alice take over? She’d never played anything but classical music, but what the heck! After that baptism by fire, she never looked back, and has been the band’s keyboard player ever since, to the delight of the (mostly young!) audience that packs the Showtime on Sunday nights.
